Track and Field Day

On September 24, we had Track and Field Day. Due to COVID, we are not able to go on field trips right now. Ms. Robyn and Ms. Kim brought the fun to us! We had so much fun! The students and staff played volleyball, kickball, sack races, bubbles, kites, parachutes, and lawn dart games. The most fun was had with the water! We used big water sprayers to squirt pyramids down. It didn't take long for the pyramids to go down and the staff to be all wet by the students. It was the best part of the day! We decided we will have to plan a big water day at the end of the year! Ms. Kim brought us Subway sandwiches for lunch. Thank you to SESE for providing us all of the activities! It was a great day!


We have to wear a mask everyday. Please make sure your child has a mask they are comfortable wearing. We have extras at school in case they are ripped or dirty.


If your child is going to be absent for any reason, please give me a call or send an email and let me know. I will call to check on your child if I do not hear from you. (618) 665-3393 ext. 156
